Hey!  I just finished your book......I loved it! it was very inspiring. the only thing I would ask is....would you do it all again?  It's amazing Gods timing & His way of doing things that work out to our good, even though it doesn't seem like it at the time!!!   I can't wait to look for more books! by the way, my brother & his wife are expecting in March...Praise God!
 
Thanks for the book, hope all is well!

Dear Ginger:  Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you about your book. I learned so much about you that I didn't know and you have the unique gift of taking ordinary everyday happenings and seeing God's Hand in them and understanding how He wants you to use them. Thank you, thank you for being vulnerable and sharing your trials and triumphs with us.

Hi Pat,
I just finished reading Ginger’s book this afternoon! Wow!!! I really felt a kindred spirit with her, even though I have never left the US!! What a story. Thank you again for giving me the book. I bet I read it several more times. It never hurts to be reminded to remember how God still speaks to us.

Love,
Cathy (missionary to American Indians in Montana)


“Ginger, I just finished your book last night. I loved it. I laughed and it also brought back lots of memories from the letters you wrote us when you were in the Philippines.”

Marsha Bowman (Friend and prayer warrior)


“I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH YOUR BOOK - I AM NOW ON THE SECOND TIME READING. IT'S FUNNY, I REMEMBER WHEN YOU MARRIED TOMMY AND LEFT FOR AFRICA; I DID ATTEND HIS FUNERAL/MEMORIAL SERVICE. I DO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MARRIED LES AND WHEN YOU TWO MOVED TO THE PHILIPPINES, BUT ALL THE IN BETWEEN I AM LEARNING IS SO FABULOUS! I AM TAKING THE BOOK TO A BIBLE STUDY THE METHODIST CHURCH I AM NOW ATTENDING STARTED LAST WED. NIGHT; IT WILL BE FOR 6 WEEKS, BUT I WANT THEM TO SEE AND BE INTERESTED IN THE BOOK - IT IS SO REAL AND SO MUCH LEARNING TO GET FROM IT.”

“Wow! I received the book Saturday. Jordan wants to read it too! Very impressive. My mom would be proud!”

One lady (from my Women Entrepreneur’s of Lubbock Club) told me, "I took it to the garage to smoke and thought to myself that I'd read a couple of pages and then do something else." She started at the back of the book with H-J's "Adoption Story," (Lynette has made some clothes for H-J, so she knows her). But when she finished that vignette, she turned to the front and began to read. She said that she stood in the garage and read the entire book. LOL THAT'S the kind of response a writer dreams about.

One man who has coffee every Saturday morning with Les told him, Saturday morning, "Tell Virginia that she made me laugh and she made me cry.  Tell her she did a good job writing that book."

Tommy Kelly

He's a Bible teacher and a retired man who I admire and value his opinion. WOW! THAT made my day.


I have been trying to think of the perfect words to use to describe what your book meant to me and nothing that truly expresses my feelings will come to my slow mind. All I could think of is the real experience of Experiencing God. Everything in your book glorifies HIM in all ways possible. I laughed and I cried at at times I sat up straight as God got my attention. I must ask though if you had done that Experiencing God study before your mission experience with Les? I know you had told me that you had done it several times. I always loved the way that Blackaby used scripture throughout the study and seeing that you did the same, truly excited me to see that you were in touch with God through every minute of your writing of this book. As inadequate as my platitudes are, thank you dear Ginger for a job well done. Guess I'll have to purchase some now and pass them on. :) I have several who are waiting to read Our God Still Speaks! HE CERTAINLY DOES!”

Thanks, Ginger.   And I wanted to mention to you that I finished your book, "God still Speaks". You did a FINE job and I found it interesting and very well written. Good for you. A LOT of work. I know. I would consider it as good as any Wycliffe book I can recall reading.

Blessings, Steve Van Rooy (Missionary and friend)

Hi Ginger,

Well Yesterday I had a couple of hours, or maybe I should say I made a couple of hours, and read your book cover to cover. Great job. Lots of heart and wonderful descriptions of life as it sometimes really is. I never realized that your time in Ilap was so life changing for you. God always has His ways of placing us in those circumstances that help us to grow and be moulded into the image of His son, even though the experience is not always pleasant at the time.

"Virginia, your book is DARLING. I laughed and cried."

Rosey Dow (writer of Christian Fiction and former missionary).


Wow, Ginger, your website is GREAT. You have someone really GOOD working on that! Very cool!!! And now, may God continue to use it, and your encouraging, faith-building book, to touch the lives of those who desperately need to know that God is sovereignly in control, that He is loving and faithful to provide for ALL we need. I believe you are going to hear more and more stories of touched lives as times goes on.

Leslie in NC


Hi Ginger! Can't wait to get my copy! I wish there were some excerpts on the web site! (There is now)

Wow, what awesome colors. The design is gorgeous! The links are very well done, too.  What a great job. Did you do the artwork for this? I'm impressed.
